    Description

    All-American Comics #25-36 Bound Volume (DC, 1941-42). This stunning bound volume features the first appearances of Dr. Mid-Nite (who predates Daredevil as the first blind superhero by more than 20 years), Sargon the Sorcerer, and Green Lantern's sidekick Doiby Dickles as well as Hop Harrigan's brief career as an actual superhero. Included are copies of All-American Comics #25 (origin and first appearance of Dr. Mid-Nite, Hop Harrigan's first appearance as the Guardian Angel, last "Adventure in the Unknown" story), #26 (origin and first appearance of Sargon), #27 (first appearance of Doiby Dickles), #28 (last appearance of Hop Harrigan as costumed hero), 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, and 36 that have been trimmed and spiral-bound into a hardcover volume for the office of managing editor M. C. Gaines. Artists include Stan Aschmeier, Martin Nodell, Howard Purcell, and Irwin Hasen. The comics were trimmed on all sides (meaning the spines have been trimmed away as well) and had holes punched along the left edges to accommodate the spiral binding (the cover and first seven pages of #25 were punched along the right as well), and the front hinge is slightly loose; otherwise the comics are in overall nice condition with bright, glossy covers, off-white to tan pages pages, and mild to moderate wear. Overstreet 2007 VG 4.0 value for group = $6,206.
